Dubai-based watersports company Sea Riders is holding wakeboarding clinics with champion wakeboarder Matt Crowhurst in March.

Wakeboarding has become the go-to action sport in Dubai with dozens of adrenaline junkies waking up before sunrise to take advantage of the calm and empty waters.

Matt’s hands-on approach means he’ll be riding right alongside you, guiding you through each new trick, giving you pointers and tips along the way.

You’ll be doing 360 surface-switch flip kicks before you know it. What do you mean that’s not a thing?
